In Massachusetts, college students who live off-campus and other renters have been injured and killed over the past decade as a result of landlords who were trying to save money. In 2013, a Boston University student was tragically killed in a house fire on Linden Street in Allston. The house was in violation of City of Boston zoning rules. Some of the students were only able to escape by jumping out of a window. Our attorney represented one of the survivors in this fire.
